Gonzaga had success rotating Przemek Karnowski and Zach Collins on BYU center Eric Mika, the WCC’s leading scorer and rebounder, in its 85-75 win over BYU in Provo, Utah on Thursday.

Mika made just 3 of 10 field-goal attempts in the first half as Gonzaga built a 42-26 advantage. The talented sophomore finished with 15 points and 11 boards, but he was just 5 of 15 from the field. He committed five turnovers.

“He’s a great player,” said Collins, who played a extended minutes in crunch time with Karnowski in foul trouble. “Obviously he’s going to make some shots, but for the most part we did what we wanted to do.”
